Project Based Learning in Early Childhood Education
"Inquiry activities allow children to explore concrete phenomena and ideas central to the content area theme. Children engage in problem-solving and collaboration as they manipulate ideas and materials to develop understandings about the content being discussed." -International Reading Association
Project Based Learning in Hathaway Brown's Early Childhood program is based within a set of strategies that enables educators to guide and encourage students to partake in an in-depth investigation of a pragmatic topic that piques their interest. This interest-based learning is critical in order for children to flourish, helping to keep them on track in constructing their own knowledge - faciliated by the teachers - while building the social and emotional skills that help them grow as individuals.
